My Pinkalicious Blog Hop Challenge: Wildly Sweet Notebook

Last Friday My Pink Stamper had her monthly My Pinkalicious Blog Hop.  The theme was “school” that could not be a card or scrapbook page.  The ideas and creativity that came along that blog hop was AMAZING!  I have listed at least seven projects I want to do. 

In spirit of the challenge, MPS presented a similar theme for the challenge.  I just had my first chance to make my project last night since my “big” project just wrapped up yesterday.  I have been following the submissions and the creativity and ideas are equally inspiring.  There is a few “crayon wreaths” that I just adore and will make for a couple of teachers this year.

For this challenge, I decided to make my teenage neighbor, who is our baby sitter, a composition book with a my usual “sweet wild” theme. Yes… I know… If I were a contestant on Project Runway and Michael Kors or Nina Garcia were judging me they would be yawning on my same old theme… but I can’t help it, I LOVE animal print and cupcakes!   Since she is in High School, I assume she can use this for all the note taking that comes with the territory of being a high schooler.  I embossed the “cupcake” with the Cuttlebug Number’s folder to give it a more “school time theme”. 

Thanks for coming and sharing a piece of “blog hoppin’ challenge” pie with me.
